Ricoh Asia Pacific – Eco Action Day Campaign & Roundtable
On 2 April, RA launched its 13th annual Eco Action Day campaign in Singapore and invited organizations, schools and individuals to be part of the advocacy by pledging green actions for an eco-friendlier Singapore @ www.ecoaction.sg.This year’s campaign will tackle Goal 13 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which urges people to take urgent action to combat climate change. Each pledge will be included into the Climate Action Pledges by the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR). RA will also match the carbon savings from pledges made by each organisation and school with the same amount of natural gas carbon credits generated from an electricity plant in Singapore.
On 30 May, RA brought together Government leaders and industry experts to address topics on sustainable waste management and recycling via a circular economy and come up with solutions and actions to advance Sustainable Development Goal 13, Climate Action.
